Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral research position is available in plant molecular genetics and
development to study structural stomatal mutants in Arabidopsis.  Two
EMS-induced mutations, "too many mouths" and "four lips", have been isolated
that have extra adjacent stomata.  tmm appears to be an important regulator of
stomatal formation, and acts at several developmental levels.  Furthermore,
its effect on stomatal formation varies greatly depending upon organ and

The postdoctorate will be expected to initiate gene cloning, isolate and
analyze additional stomatal mutants, perform genetic analyses of mutants in the
pathway, and evaluate developmental aspects of the phenotypes.

A background in molecular biology and genetics is required.  It is desirable
that the applicant also have experience in cloning and in plant development.
Funding is from NSF for up to 3 years.  The position is available as soon as
September 1995.
